A retirement home differs from a nursing home primarily in the level of medical care given. A place in a retirement home can be paid for on a rental basis, like an apartment, or can be bought in perpetuity on the same basis as a condominium. Retirement homes are also called retirement residences. You have a close network of nearby family, friends, and neighbors. A nursing home is normally the highest level of care for older adults outside of a hospital. A nursing home may be a good choice if both medical and personal care needs have become too great to handle at home. The housing is friendlier to older adults, more compact, with easier navigation and assistance in outside maintenance. An assisted living facility may be a good choice if you need more personal care services than are feasible at home or in an independent living retirement community. A retirement home is a multi-residence housing facility intended for senior citizens. A nursing home, convalescent home, Skilled Nursing Unit, care home or rest home provides a specific type of care for its residents. Assisted living residences or assisted living facilities provide supervision or assistance with monitoring of resident activities to help to ensure their health, safety, and well-being. Other licensure terms used for this philosophy of care include Residential Care Home, Assisted Care Living Facilities, and Personal Care Homes. A nursing home may be a good choice if both medical and personal care needs have become too great to handle at home. Staff is available twenty-four hours a day. Each state licensing agency has its own definition of the term it uses to describe assisted living. There is a wide range of home care services that can help you maintain your independence within the comfort of your own home, from in home help to day care.
